And big thanks to the inestimable Joey Poole for that. Excerpt? Word.
"I'm happy to report that the stories in Hair Lit Vol.1,
deliver the goods. Some of them, like Chip Cheek's deceptively
light-hearted "Twisted Sister Makes a Comeback" and Ben Tanzer's Bon
Jovi-hating "Dead or Alive" examine the ethos of the era. Others, like
Nick Ostdick's "True Hair" and Ryan W. Bradley's "The Truth About
Fingering" find inspiration in loosely fictionalizing song lyrics.
Still others, like Megan Stielstra's devastating "Heart's Not Metal" and
Susannah Felts' "Training" tell stories from the era with the music
thumping away in the background as a soundtrack."
